    Just wondering if there was anybody on the forum running 20s on 225/30/20? Just wondering what the general drive was like, handling, everyday coping with uk roads etc? I would love 20s, but 19s are more practical I feel. I do alot of motorway miles and enjoy "spirited" driving also.

    Thanks

    Can't see 20s looking good on an A3. The ride is seriously affected on 19s already so dread to think what it'd be like on 20s!

    Dont go sueing the council when you wreck the wheels in a tiny pothole they need that money to mend the potholes in the first place

    19s and lowered is enough lad in my opinion

    I dont think the 19s have affected my car that much to be honest but we will soon see if i decide to put my 17s back on for winter

    Agree - it's not the right car. A guy in my street has a black Dodge Ram 1500 pick-up with chromed 20" rims and they suit this monster.

    IMO even 19's are too big for a A3 so 20's would be plain stupid.

    If you lower your car enough, 19's look just fine:salute: A few examples from the States:

    Glad I could help out making your decision. IMO 19's are just the right size for the A3. 18's are too small, 20's are a little too much, it can be done and look stunning if you have a deep enough wallet.....

    Looking forward to see pictures of your ride with your new wheels...:icon_thumright:
